There is a guy called Dave K. Schmidt (was still
dkschmidt at compuserve.com in 2001-2002ish). He will (or would as of two
years ago) sell a MacIvory2 in machine for something like $800, or you
can supply the Mac to save a few hundred.
He also has (or at least had two years ago) UX-400s (VME Ivorys to go in
Suns) for $400ish (I think, this is just going from my recall from an
email from him 1-2 years ago).
